Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-H.I.) officially kicked off her campaign for president on Saturday.

"Join me in building a movement for peace at home and overseas that will fulfil the promise of America for freedom, justice, equality, and opportunity for all". The New York Times, when exposing the scam, quoted a New Knowledge report that boasted of its fabrications: "We orchestrated an elaborate "false flag" operation that planted the idea that the [Roy] Moore campaign was amplified on social media by a Russian botnet'". Gabbard comes from a multicultural, multi-religious family and she was the first Hindu elected to Congress.

She is now serving as the Congresswoman from Hawaii's 2nd District and has previously served in the combat zone in Iraq, following which she was deployed in Kuwait.

With all that's been going on in the White House over the past couple of years, the 2020 election campaign is set to be one of the most historic presidential campaigns ever.

How was Gabbard's speech received, and what does a recent NBC News article targeting Gabbard and Russian Federation indicate about her potential danger to the political establishment?

Bernie Sanders during his own presidential bid, recently came under fire for her past views and support of anti-gay conversion therapy.

Gabbard also was forced to apologize for her past opposition to same-sex marriage, which she now supports, and has been engaged in a public feud with Hawaii's popular Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono over a federal judicial nominee.

Gabbard serves on the House Armed Services Committee where she is a strong advocate for veterans, our service members, and making smart strategic decisions that best secure our nation.

He also believes that this game's success could lead to greater interest in the coming release of the " Titanfall " sequel. After EA and Respawn Entertainment surprise launched Apex Legends this week, it caught the industry by storm.

She introduced the Heroes Fly Act to improve airport screenings for injured veterans, the Filipino Veterans of WWII Congressional Gold Medal Act of 2015 to give Filipino American veterans who fought in World War II the Congressional Gold Medal and Talia's Law to stop child abuse on military bases - all of which passed.

Gabbard, who met with Assad during a 2017 "fact-finding" mission in Syria told MSNBC's Morning Joe Wednesday he is not an enemy of the USA, despite the ruthless leader having used chemical weapons against opposition forces inside his own country.

"If you can not say he's an adversary or an enemy, what is Assad to the U.S.?"

In response, Gabbard accused NBC of using "journalistic fraud" in a smear campaign against her. The obstacles great, but I know when we stand united by our love for our people and for our country, there is no obstacle we can not overcome.

She also slammed the administration for supporting Saudi Arabia in its conflict with Yemen.

"Assad is not the enemy of the United States because Syria does not pose a direct threat to the United States", Gabbard responded.

Other Democratic candidates in the race includes former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, US Rep.
